2016 Goals – February Goals Mid Month Update

Okay, this post is a little early but that’s okay.  I feel like sharing where I’m at and it’s a great reminder for me on what is on my list for February.

#1 – Get 6 quilts done in 2016

Tell It To The Stars – I’m working on the binding now!  Woohoo!  I am trying to get this done this week so I can just be finished with it.  This will definitely be done this month.

Bailey is at the shop so I plan on cleaning and checking the level of the frame for Scrapitude 2015 which is the next quilt on the quilt queue.

Scrapitude – Get this on the frame and get this quilted. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get this quilted in February but I’ll be happy to get it on the frame.

#2 – Continue to count my stash, with a true effort to not add fabric on a whim.  

For February, my goal is to continue to not add to my stash and with Tell It To the Stars done, I would like to be in the black for once in my life. 🙂

==> So far I haven’t purchased any fabric for 2016.

#3 – Create a hobby budget a stick to it!  

I may have bought something at my guild meeting last Monday.  I’ll report it on Sunday but I’m not fairing too well with this goal.  Oh well, as my first year doing this one, it’s very similar to counting stash where my numbers were way high the first year.  It took 3 years before I got to where I am now with my stash numbers. I’ll just keep tracking it.  I’m embarrassed at how much I spend but it is what it is.  I’m sure as I keep tracking it, I’ll discover things about myself like I did when I started reporting my stash ins and outs.

#4 – Knit weekly

My goal for February is to get the Rosie Hat done.

==> Things have slowed down on this front.  Ever since my wrist/elbow started hurting again I only work a bit on my knitting from week to week.  I am still hoping to get this done in February.  I just need to remind myself that this is one of the things I want to do this month.

#5 – Cross Stitch weekly

My goal for February was to get the bottom right corner complete and the letter “E” of welcome done. Here’s a pic of the project so you can see what I’m talking about. I need to take a picture but I’ve got that bottom right corner complete so the next thing I will be working on is the “E” of welcome.  I’ve also started outlining some of the details on the bottom border.

#6 – Scrapbook

For February, I want to get those pictures onto pages.  I also want to go into one of my project bags to see where I left off.  Ideally, I’d like to start where I left off so I can empty out the project bags and use them for my 2015/2016 album.

==> I haven’t done anything for this goal in February yet.  Hopefully I will be able to spend some time over the 3 day weekend on this.

Here’s a link to my original 2016 Goals.

Here’s to a great year!
